Im Elite Plus so I get 45 days to PM.

Lucky duck. I miss being Elite Plus, but then I remind myself I would have had to spend an extra $2k just to get it.

Was it speedy that also had that famous thread in OT regarding his rental home and getting sued by the landlord over various breach of contract stuff?  That thread was amazing.  An all-timer.

Dalerax! Understand the stardom that would be given to you if you got the ads early.  I could be your manager!  I'll swat away all the CAG groupies for you!  You and I are destined for big things!!

But seriously,  snap some pictures. Send them to a member on here and they will post the ads so there is no trail leading to you.  Strictly text, no signs or pictures that can come back to you.  

 

You would literally be vaulted to god like status on these forums.  And of course giving you credit for everything.

Even Jesus had his enemies.  Have to choose which is more important getting praise from peers for your good deeds or not even helping your peers.

Yeah I'm waiting for a good price on GTA too. Unfortunately I think the PC release brought everything back to full price because they know the game is back on people's minds and they figure anyone who is reminded that they still need to pick up GTA might as well pay full price for it. Or they don't want the PC version sitting there costing a lot more than the consoles. Probably gonna be another few weeks now before the price gets better.

50% off all guides isn't too shabby, but I'm pretty much set on those. Thanks anyway, OP.

Depends on the guide, though non-CE guides are usually not worth picking up at 50% off since Prima sells their eGuides on the cheap.

I played Sunset Overdrive in November when MS had it free for the weekend. Maybe I didn't play long enough (played maybe for 5 hrs) but it just couldn't get into it even though it had a Ratchet and Clank feel.

Newbie trade in question. I live on Long Island NY and all of my local Best Buys only accept trades that were purchased at Best Buy. I bought my 360 from them years ago but paid cash and no longer have the receipt. Has anyone traded a console in online? Anything special I need to know? I read the Best Buy Faqs page but it's kind of generic. I have all the original cables and controllers but no longer have the original box. Thanks in advance for the info.

I've never heard of a store only accepting trades if they were bought at that store. Seems they may be taking the trade policy into their own hands.
If you use the my best buy card they can probably look it up, I have had them look up really old transactions(over 4 years) for me in the past to use the warranty.

The store is making changes to policy that they're not allowed to.  They cannot deny trade-ins if the console didn't come from them.    You don't need to the box to trade-in the console, just controller + power supply.

 

If the store gives you grief, call the BB corporate number of 612-291-1000 from the store, get the store number and then ask for Executive Customer Relations.  Explain to them how that store is making policy on their own different from posted company policy and I would expect the store to stop that ridiculous BS of making policy on their own.

I got that info from the Best Buy website. When I click on my local stores, it says restrictions apply. This is from the website: "This store offers Trade-In only on eligible items including mobile phones, tablets, other hardware, and video game software that were purchased by you at Best Buy. Determine the value of your Trade-In now. Participating stores may have additional requirements. For eligibility and details, please see our FAQs"

It's not that particular Best Buy making the rules, that's the local pawn laws in your location. There are quite a few counties/areas across the U.S. that have those requirements. You will not be able to trade items unless you can produce proof that the items were purchased at Best Buy. Like the other CAG suggested, maybe they can look into your rewards account for proof of purchase

Its actually nothing to do with Best Buy and has to do with local pawn laws. A store near me does that in a different county while the other ones don't. Sucks but nothing you can do about it.
